Curiosity #2

I would like to bravely say that our allotment plots are run on strictly organic lines.

I stress that I would like to, but while I am, perhaps as aware as anyone about ecology and environmental matters I like to eat the food we grow, so do, sometimes sink to

using proprietary weedkillers… and’ please, don’t get me started on peat!

But the allotment is run to be wildlife aware and, if I dare to say it myself, is fairly successful in this way. So much so that we only just discovered a wren’s nest in the layed hedge along one side of the plot yesterday.

I also like to think that I am sensitive and observant to, and of the many creatures that share the plot…

… and the picture I am posting here is something I have seem several times before, but have no idea as to an explanation.

This is an earthworm which seems to have “tied itself into a knot”

Is that possible, and , er, for what reason ?

We have had warm, dry weather (look at the soil) and this one was, literally unearthed as I dug up the potatoes.

Any suggestions?

Please let me know.

  2. Rambling Ratz loves all of natures critters. It does seem to have got itself into a tangle. Perhaps a bird got it all twisted?
